Just for fun!

HappySunday friends,
Today I have a card to show...not a DT card...this one, just because I wanted to make a card.
As I had previously mentioned my son, dil and grandies have been here for 3 weeks. I also had a birthday 2 months ago and they brought me some lovely gifts ...Dutch Doobadoo stencils and more Pan Pastels, so of course I had to have a bit of playtime with these.

Here is what I used:

Paper - red cardstock. The I used one of the new stencils and my Pan Pastels and created some background paper. It is not too visible here, but I had fun just playing. I used theDoobadoo sunshine stencil and colours from the butterfly that I had  coloured first and a butterfly punch in the one corner.

Image is a Joycrafts stamp, Silhouette Butterfly. Again I played with a stencil and first coloured the paper before stamping. The butterfly was also coloured with the Pan Pastels using the new set of shades.

I added some fibre under the stamped image. Finished it off with a twine bow and a charm, also a few pearls.

Sentiment - Whiff of Joy stamped onto a banner.

I must say I had fun making this and am entering the following challenges:
Sister Act Card challenge #56...Anything goes
Polkadoodles challenge Wk 18...Something old, something new..(Old - twine & charm...New - stencils and Pan Pastels)
